Eibach spring question (which model)

Hi all, thank you for all the info... I think I am going Eibach/Koni route due to cost...

It will be for an E90/325XI with very worn OEM strut/shock. I've had Eibach/Koni on different car so I am sure it will suit requirements... honestly, KYB would be ok for this purpose...

My question is... which Eibach model will work correctly... seems the chart suggest 2085.140 but I see others with 2091.140 and 2092.140.
I know this is for non-XI but hoping you can help clarify the difference between the different models.

My main objective is to look less 4x4 and have an even rake, prefer not to sag in rear... I know the handling will improve over current... no need for race handling on this as no other mod are planned other then non-rft tires.

Let me know if there is a less expensive option in term of strut/shock/spring to achieve the same result.

Thank you in advice...

Question for all you using Eibach non-XI springs...

Which spring model should I get for the 325XI to give best ride and rake...? HELP...

E90:
325XI = 3600 lbs
325I = 3350 lbs (2085.140)
328I = 3400 lbs (2085.140)
328CI = 3420 lbs (2091.140)
330I = 3450 lbs (2085.140)
335I = 3600 lbs (2092.140)

If all I look is total weight, I would say it will match the 2092.140 BUT I am wondering if the weight is distributed similar to the 325XI, meaning yes the turbo setup vs the AWD but I am sure some of the weight is the dual exhaust...
